Designation of Agents for Service of Process FORM BOC-3 Mobile App
The Designation of Agents for Service of Process FORM BOC-3 is an app that allows motor carriers or motor carrier companies to provide notice to the Department of Transportation's Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) with a list of registered agents that can be used for service of process in all states in which the motor carrier or motor carriers operate.
How does it work?
A registered agent is used to accept service of process for legal filings or business matters by having a company designate them with the authority to accept service. Typically, companies such as motor carriers and freight forwarders that need to operate in multiple states, but may only have a physical presence in a single state, hire registered agent service companies that represent that company in a state so that government regulations such as USDOT or other companies or individuals can file a lawsuit and have a process server properly serve papers on that trucking company in whatever state they operate in.
